Marathon rest day = Eat, shop, eat...ok eat again...

Omg what a fantab day!!

I was going to work out and then realized my body was begging me for another day off to rest. Ok fine.

So, I went to Walmart, Target, and several grocery stores to hunt down their sales. At 7am!! I love that Walmart opens at 7am on Sundays.

Buffalo Wing Girl made...guess...BUFFALO WINGS!!! My first batch of homemade wings EVER thanks to Kate's suggestion. And they were SO GOOD!! I tried to make them healthy but I don't think that's possible:

A new addition to the family: Miss Hello Kitty Barbie:

And finally - my favorite recipe of 2007, hands down. It's SO GOOD and HEALTHY!!! Best part is, you really can't mess it up. If you add more or less veggies, olive oil or balsamic, it will still taste great!! For my runners and diet-conscious readers, I've included the nutritional information and recipe:

1 package of Lentils (pre-cooked!) from Trader Joes
2 cups cherry tomatoes
5 medium celery stalks, diced
2 cups chopped parsley
2 cups chopped cilantro
2.5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 garlic cloves, finely minced

THROW IT ALL TOGETHER and toss! Chill as desired. I've made this in the past and it stays good in the refrigerator for more than a week in a proper storage container. Yum.

nutritional totals/per serving:
- 1045 cals/209
- 35 fat/7
- 132 carbs/26.4
- 48 fiber/9.6
- 50 protein/10
(Each serving is about 1.5 cups)

If you'd like to modify my recipe, try the following:
diced onion (red, green or both - however much you like)
red bell peppers if you'd like

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend

You shop at Walmart, too? In addition to Target, the 99 cent store, Trader Joes, Pavilions and Costco and the assumed plethora of stores you just don't mention? You never cease to amaze.

Yo, so when is Hooters night at your crib? Don't forget to add some of that Dave's Insanity sauce on top of those wings.
